Tuesday round-up


  • In The New York Times, Adam Liptak looks at Mickelson v. County of Ramsey, a pending cert petition challenging a Colorado county’s imposition of “booking fees” on people who are arrested, even if no charges are ever filed, noting that an “unusual coalition of civil rights organizations, criminal defense lawyers and conservative and libertarian groups have challenged these sorts of policies, saying they confiscate private property without constitutional protections and lock poor people into a cycle of crimes, debts and jail.”

  • At Empirical SCOTUS, Adam Feldman analyzes the “relative ideologies” of the state court judges on Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees based on their campaign finance contributions.
  • In The Washington Post, Aaron Blake argues that Donald Trump’s potential ability to “stamp his imprint on the nation’s highest court,” if “there are one or two more vacancies on the court during Trump’s tenure,” “could be the biggest, most enduring result of his victory.”
